Since July 17th, the contemporary art gallery ZMUD that did so much - and still does - for the Argentinean art scene, whether from the professionalization of artists or the commercialization of works, dresses its walls with the works of all those artists who once went through it to close a stage. Larisa Luz Zmud, founder and director of the gallery, described it with sincere words in an e-mail that circulated through galleries ZMUD friends, thrilling and reflecting all its readers: "I do not propose this as a closure, but as a transformation to change to something more in keeping with the real situation of Argentina and its art market. It's not an end, it's a new chapter". This is why ZMUD says goodbye in a big way through an intense two-week cycle with open talks on collecting, analysis of works, feminism, and everything you can imagine: of course, crowning him with a party on Saturday 28th at the space itself.

The second half of the year has arrived and the distances between what was and what is, is usually reduced to moments of constant revision that allow us to sketch what will be, or at least form an expectation of it. For Venezuelan art, half of the year has meant the possibility of witnessing the dialogue between complexity and typical contradiction of a convulsed country, in which past and future are interrelated to speak in the present tense.

In the German capital - one of the epicenters of the international contemporary art scene - the tenth edition of the Contemporary Art Biennial of Berlin takes place since June 9. This year the Biennial, entitled We do not need another hero, has the participation of the South African Gabi Ngcobo as curator in chief.

The large number of Latin American artists participating in this edition of the Biennial is no small thing: compared to previous editions, the curatorial project for 2018 decided to reduce the cast of artists from one hundred and twenty artists who participated two years ago, to only forty six this year. Taking into account these figures, the prominence of Latin American and Caribbean art is a novelty, as some ten artists from these regions participate.

Primera exposición en María, abril 2018

Review by: Carlos Zevallos Trigoso

A sensation that is perceived today in Lima, especially among young artists, is that the activities of the art market do not offer enough stability and that the work necessary to build a personal career is crossed by factors that are not very transparent. It is in this context that initiatives are launched by young people, some of them artists, where they design for themselves and their peers some dynamics that allow them to relate to the market while maintaining greater control and with expectations much greater than that of commercial circulation. Two significant examples of this are Maria and Crisis galleries, projects with less than two years of activities that are directed towards the future with clear readings of the context and their needs.

Crisis Galería: today inaugurates Trapos (Rags), the individual exhibition of Javier Bravo de Rueda

The exhibition that opens Crisis, the Peruvian gallery, follows a deep mental process. The work itself is a transition by itself as part of the idea of collage. From the university, Javier Bravo de Ruedas has had an intense link with this technique over the years. However, on this occasion, the artist expiates that exhausting memory of the millions of pieces of paper that he had to cut throughout his career, treating the collage as an alternative to the process he follows in other projects of his artistic practice: on the one hand, to the detailed planning required by ceramics, with careful sketches and modeling and, on the other hand, his paintings on canvas, where he elaborates an abstraction full of symbols.

Roberto Huarcayas Amazonia- Bahuaja Sonene

In 2014, the non-profit organization Wildlife Conservation Society invited twelve Latin American artists to enter the Bahuaja Sonene Reserve located in the south east of Peru. The idea of ​​the program was, through artistic expression, to make known the reservation to the region so that awareness is generated. Bahuaja Sonene is one of the six national parks with the most biodiversity on the planet. Among the poets, musicians, chefs and visual artists invited to represent this great landscape was Roberto Huarcaya, a Peruvian psychologist, photographer and artist who has been experimenting with the notion of territory for several years from his series of panoramas Campos de Batalla (Battlefields).
